Ikebana International Exhibit,Sogetsu School

As part of the Ikebana International exhibit at the Boston Flower and Garden Show, I chose to do a Free Style design in 2 containers representing the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. The design type also includes characteristics of a Composition of curved lines or repetition of similar forms. I chose a container with a curved shape. Using bending techniques, I created circles of Rubikins willow, and manipulated the Aspidistra leaves to express the sense of rhythm. Ikebana designs are not judged but exhibited to discover the beauty of plants and the pleasure of self-expression.

Plant materials: Gerbera Daisy, Rubikins willow,Variegated Cast Iron Plant
